 About Hazaribagh:

The district of Ramgarh was formed in 2007, by being carved out of the Hazaribagh district. While Hazaribagh has been recognized as an economically backward district, Ramgarh, which has rich coal and mineral reserves, is one of the primary industrial hubs in Jharkhand, housing some of the most significant large-scale industries of sponge iron, steel, refractory and thermal power and cement.  

The district of Hazaribagh is part of the Red Corridor, as this region often faces the brunt of the whims of the Red Labels. Thus, the Hazaribagh constituency is one of the most political volatile segments of the parliament.

Political Background:

Yashwant Sinha, former Finance Minister of India is the MP from the Hazaribagh constituency, representing the BJP. He has returned to the Hazaribagh seat for a total of 3 terms, making this parliamentary constituency much coveted and contested.

Present Political Scenario:

A very few Constituency where BJP  has an hold of minority votes

Now a fight of the dynasties as Congress has re-nominated the royal, Saurabh Narayan Singh who is also a two-time MLA and as if on cue, BJP has nominated Jayant Sinha whose father, Yashwant Sinha, has represented this constituency many times and has decent rapport with the voters (including minorities). In this upper-caste battle between BJP and Congress, the OBC and minority votes may prove to be crucial in the end analysis.

Congress will use Lalu Prasad Yadav and BJP has its prime-ministerial candidate Modi to sway the OBC voters here. This is also a rare constituency where Muslims have very good working relationship with a BJP leader.
